The Glock pistol is a meme and a scam. You're not actually supposed to buy it as your range gun that you put thousands of rounds through. Yes it's a brilliant pistol but it really is a 75$ pistol being sold for 550 dollars. Glock was able to saturate the market because the pistol ended up becoming extremely reliable and effective, and because it's cheap to produce he was able to wedge his way in and practically give them away for free.
This is why I always avoided Glock because I suspected that was the situation, then I bought one and I have no love for it. You have to come to terms with the fact that it's literally a semi-disposable concept like aluminum AR-15 magazines.This pistol has no charm aside from practicality and utility. The only reason to buy it is for defense or if you're Law Enforcement/Military and you're getting a good deal. From a connoisseur's perspective, buy something like a Beretta 92 or any other pistol that has charm.
